Rosemary Shaving Soap for Men.

Rinse your face with fresh water, then lather up your beard with this fragrant soap before shaving.
Be sure to thoroughly rinse off the lather.

2/3 cup rose water

4 ounces pure soap flakes

4 drops rosemary essential oil

3 drops lemon essential oil

2 drops bay essential oil

1 drop sage essential oil

1. Warm the rose water in a nonreactive saucepan over low heat. Place the soap flakes in the top of a double boiler over simmering water. Stir the warmed rose water into the flakes to moisten. Keep stirring the mixture until the soap has melted to a smooth gel {if necessary use a potato masher to dissolve the soap}. Remove from the heat and cool to lukewarm.

2. Stir in the essential oils and spoon the soap into a sterilized shallow 7-ounce glass jar with a tight-fitting lid. Set aside to harden for 3 to 5 days. Keep handy in a cool, dark place.
